Character Counts! week; everywhere but APS

Students in the APS have celebrated Character Counts! Week, link, every year since it was unanimously adopted by the APS School Board in 1994. But not this year.

This year, no mention of the nationally recognized, accepted and respected code of ethical conduct, despite the fact that it is still the APS Student Standard of Conduct.

It was not mentioned because neither the senior most administrative role model of the student standards of conduct, Supt Winston Brooks nor the senior most executive role model School Board President Marty Esquivel can summon the character or the courage to step up and show students what moral courage looks like.

Their is no community outrage because the community is being kept in the dark about their abdication as role models. They are being kept in the dark by Journal Editor Kent Walz who is keeping stakeholders in the dark about a lot of things;

  • the abdication of senior role models,
  • the cover up of corruption in the APS Police Department, and
  • the denial of due process to hundreds of whistle blower complaints against APS administrators.
It's a regular rogues gallery of cowardice and corruption.
